South Pole works with a large number of prestigious public and private sector organisations focused on climate action. We work with our clients to identify and implement policies and tools to catalyse climate action, supporting wider sustainable development goals.
One key aspect of our work that will be at the top of the climate agenda in 2020 is nature based solutions (NBS).
